Welcome to Foundation Stage!

In FSA we have Miss Vassilliou, Mrs Murphy and Miss Mustapha. In FSJ we have Miss McGann and Mrs Murphy. On a Tuesday we have Mrs Giannotto for P.E and Mr George for Music.


How we learn

The EYFS curriculum is split into seven areas of development;

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
  • Expressive Arts and Design
  • Understanding the World


We also learn stories about Jesus, his life and his teaching.


In Early Years, we like to ‘hook’ the children into their learning using interesting and exciting topics. The topics that we cover are child initiated – we follow the children’s interests to keep them as engaged as possible.


Reading days

The class teacher will hear each child once a week on a one to one basis with additional reading happening through adult-led focus groups and guided reading. Your child’s books will be changed twice a week on the days indicated on your reading record. We ask that every child read as often as possible at home, ideally for around five to ten minutes each day.


Home Learning

Home learning may be issued on a Friday, linking to the teaching that has occurred throughout the week. This home learning is an optional ‘extra’ and is not compulsory, but will help to consolidate your child’s learning. Home learning, unless otherwise stated, does not need to be returned to school.


Things to remember

Your child should bring their book bag to school every day, even if it isn’t one of their ‘book-changing’ days. We may have handouts for your child, and in FS, holding letters never ends well! Please also remember to give your child a water-bottle each day. We do have drinking water; however, the lack of a water bottle means your child cannot access water independently when they are thirsty.

The children will begin to attend Rewards Assembly in January.

Please remember to sign up to the school newsletter to ensure you are updated on weekly events in the school.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask one of the Foundation Stage Team.
